Paradox Interactive announced a partnership with Introversion Software to publish management simulation game Prison Architect for iOS and Android devices. The game will be available later this year on both platforms.
Mobile devices are more than capable of delivering the kind of experience that we think of as authentically ‘Paradox’ – deep, replayable, challenging games that maintain the high level of quality our fans expect from us. Prison Architect fits that mold perfectly, and we’re eager to help Introversion bring the game to more players across more platforms.
We’ve been actively supporting Prison Architect to keep expanding and improving the game since late 2012, and our community has continued to grow as well,” said Mark Morris, co-founder at Introversion Software. “A partner who understands long-term support and iteration is crucial for the future of Prison Architect, and it’s safe to say Paradox has experience in that area.
In Prison Architect: Mobile, players are tasked with the construction and maintenance of a maximum security prison, from laying out cell blocks and inmate facilities to managing staff pay and prisoner morale. Inspired by management simulators like Theme Hospital, Dwarf Fortress, and Dungeon Keeper, the game has won a BAFTA award for the “Persistent Game” category and has sold two million copies across PC and console platforms.
Prison Architect: Mobile will be free to download and play, with additional content and gameplay modes available for purchase in-game.
